  • Publication number: 20190132206
    Abstract: A method includes obtaining performance characterization values from endpoints managed by a first fog node at a first hierarchical level in a hierarchy of fog nodes. The method includes changing a first operating characteristic of the wireless network based on the performance characterization values. The first operating characteristic affects the operation of one or more of the endpoints. The method includes transmitting a portion of the performance characterization values to a second fog node at a second hierarchical level in the hierarchy of fog nodes. The method includes changing a second operating characteristic of the wireless network based on an instruction from the second fog node. The second operating characteristic affects the operation of the first fog node and/or other fog nodes at the first hierarchical level. Changing one or more of the first operating characteristic and the second operating characteristic satisfies an operating threshold for the wireless network.

  • Publication number: 20190123973
    Abstract: The present disclosure involves systems and methods for obtaining and correlating workload performance information from multiple tenants on a computing network and providing deployment improvement suggestions to a cloud operator or tenant based at least on the correlated workload performance information. In one particular implementation, applications deployed and executed on the cloud environment may provide performance logs and/or metrics to an inter-tenant workload engine of the cloud environment. The workload engine may utilize the received performance information to detect performance patterns of an application across the different tenant deployments. A recommendation engine may analyze the performance characteristics across the multiple tenant applications and determine an optimized deployment of the application and generate recommended deployment instructions to a cloud environment administrator and/or one or more tenants of the cloud environment.

  • Patent number: 10262014
    Abstract: A community exchange gathers machine consumable modules in a centralized database. The community exchange receives information associated with the status of a computing device. One or more device tags are generated based on the first information. Each of the device tags is related to at least a portion of the status of the computing device. The community exchange stores a database of machine consumable modules in association with one or more existing tags. By cross-referencing the device tags with the existing tags, the community exchange determines whether one of the machine consumable modules is associated with the device tags. Responsive to a determination that no machine consumable module in the database is associated with the device tags, the information received from the computing device is stored as a machine consumable module associated with the device tags.

  • Patent number: 10263887
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a service function classifier device determines a classification of a packet using one or more packet classification rules. The device selects a service function path based on the classification of the packet. The device determines one or more traffic flow characteristics based on the classification of the packet. The device generates a service function chaining (SFC) header that identifies the selected service function path and the determined one or more traffic flow characteristics. The SFC header is configured to cause a device along the service function path to forward the encapsulated packet based on the identified service function path and the determined one or more traffic flow characteristics. The device sends the packet along the selected service function path as an encapsulated packet that includes the generated SFC header.

  • Publication number: 20190068495
    Abstract: A cloud provider provides services to tenants over a network. Each cloud-based service is configured according to a respective service deployment scheme. The cloud provider maintains, for each service, classification information, including: a scheme type; a three-tuple cloud identifier including a cloud identifier, a service identifier, and a tenant identifier; and one or more scheme-specific service identifiers. The cloud provider distributes the classification information within the cloud provider, including to the services, to enable a respective tenant to exchange Internet Protocol (IP) packets with, and thereby access, a respective service and components of the service based on the classification information. The IP packet includes, for the respective service, the scheme type, the cloud identifier, the service identifier, the tenant identifier of the respective tenant, and the one or more scheme-specific service identifiers.

  • Patent number: 10218781
    Abstract: In one embodiment, an intermediate node, of a multi-stage process path through a computer network, receives a workload message with an associated latency budget to complete the multi-stage process at a final stage device. In response, the intermediate node determines a current latency from an initial stage device for the workload message to the receiving of the workload message, and also determines a remaining portion of the latency budget based on the current latency. In response to the remaining portion of the latency budget being less than expected at the intermediate node, the intermediate node may perform one or more latency-reducing actions, and then transmits the workload message toward the final stage device.

  • Patent number: 10167092
    Abstract: Embodiments herein describe a perch for screening drones before permitting access to a restricted geographic region. The perch may include various scanners for evaluating the payload of the drone, its hardware, and flight control software. In one embodiment, the screening perch includes a conveyor belt that moves the drone through various scanners or stages in the perch. In one embodiment, the perch ensures the drone is properly configured to enter the restricted geographic region. The region may include multiple requirements or criteria that must be satisfied before a drone is permitted to enter. For example, the drone may need a signed flight plan, cargo that is less than a certain percentage of its weight, or an approved flight controller before being permitted into the restricted region. In this manner, the perch serves as a controlled entrance point for drones attempting to enter the restricted region.
